I'm having trouble making the docutils scanner work. It isn't
establishing the dependencies I expect. One problem, clearly, is that
I have the wrong regexp syntax. It doesn't support "\w" and that
doesn't mean what I thought (whitespace) in most regex languages.
However, when I fix the syntax, I still don't get the dependency
relationships I need. Which directory does it search for the
specified files when I use common-scanner?

quickbook also has a broken scanner, I think, because the Jam string
syntax doesn't recognize \t as a tab; tabs have to be inserted
directly into the source.
